1 H1697 The word H3068 of the LORD H6846 which came to Zephaniah H1121 the son H3570 of Cushi H1121 , the son H1436 of Gedaliah H1121 , the son H568 of Amariah H1121 , the son H2396 of Hizkiah H3117 , in the days H2977 of Josiah H1121 the son H526 of Amon H4428 , king H3063 of Judah.
2 H622 [H8800] I will utterly H5486 [H8686] consume H6440 H127 all things from off the land H5002 [H8803] , saith H3068 the LORD.
3 H5486 [H8686] I will consume H120 man H929 and beast H5486 [H8686] ; I will consume H5775 the fowls H8064 of the heaven H1709 , and the fishes H3220 of the sea H4384 , and the stumblingblocks H7563 with the wicked H3772 [H8689] ; and I will cut off H120 man H6440 from off H127 the land H5002 [H8803] , saith H3068 the LORD.
4 H5186 [H8804] I will also stretch out H3027 my hand H3063 upon Judah H3427 [H8802] , and upon all the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem H3772 [H8689] ; and I will cut off H7605 the remnant H1168 of Baal H4725 from this place H8034 , and the name H3649 of the Chemarims H3548 with the priests;
5 H7812 [H8693] And them that worship H6635 the host H8064 of heaven H1406 upon the housetops H7812 [H8693] ; and them that worship H7650 [H8737] and that swear H3068 by the LORD H7650 [H8737] , and that swear H4428 by Malcham;
6 H5472 [H8737] And them that have turned back H310 from H3068 the LORD H1245 [H8765] ; and those that have not sought H3068 the LORD H1875 [H8804] , nor enquired for him.
7 H2013 [H8761] Hold thy peace H6440 at the presence H136 of the Lord H3069 GOD H3117 : for the day H3068 of the LORD H7138 is at hand H3068 : for the LORD H3559 [H8689] hath prepared H2077 a sacrifice H6942 [H8689] , he hath invited H7121 [H8803] his guests.
8 H3117 And it shall come to pass in the day H3068 of the LORD'S H2077 sacrifice H6485 [H8804] , that I will punish H8269 the princes H4428 , and the king's H1121 children H3847 [H8802] , and all such as are clothed H5237 with strange H4403 apparel.
9 H3117 In the same day H6485 [H8804] also will I punish H1801 [H8802] all those that leap H4670 on the threshold H4390 [H8764] , who fill H113 their masters H1004 ' houses H2555 with violence H4820 and deceit.
10 H3117 And it shall come to pass in that day H5002 [H8803] , saith H3068 the LORD H6963 , that there shall be the noise H6818 of a cry H1709 from the fish H8179 gate H3215 , and a wailing H4932 from the second H1419 , and a great H7667 crashing H1389 from the hills.
11 H3213 [H8685] Wail H3427 [H8802] , ye inhabitants H4389 of Maktesh H3667 , for all the merchant H5971 people H1820 [H8738] are cut down H5187 ; all they that bear H3701 silver H3772 [H8738] are cut off.
12 H6256 And it shall come to pass at that time H2664 [H8762] , that I will search H3389 Jerusalem H5216 with lamps H6485 [H8804] , and punish H582 the men H7087 [H8802] that are settled H8105 on their lees H559 [H8802] : that say H3824 in their heart H3068 , The LORD H3190 [H8686] will not do good H7489 [H8686] , neither will he do evil.
13 H2428 Therefore their goods H4933 shall become a booty H1004 , and their houses H8077 a desolation H1129 [H8804] : they shall also build H1004 houses H3427 [H8799] , but not inhabit H5193 [H8804] them; and they shall plant H3754 vineyards H8354 [H8799] , but not drink H3196 the wine of them.
14 H1419 The great H3117 day H3068 of the LORD H7138 is near H7138 , it is near H4118 , and hasteneth H3966 greatly H6963 , even the voice H3117 of the day H3068 of the LORD H1368 : the mighty man H6873 [H8802] shall cry H4751 there bitterly.
15 H3117 That day H3117 is a day H5678 of wrath H3117 , a day H6869 of trouble H4691 and distress H3117 , a day H7722 of wasting H4875 and desolation H3117 , a day H2822 of darkness H653 and gloominess H3117 , a day H6051 of clouds H6205 and thick darkness,
16 H3117 A day H7782 of the trumpet H8643 and alarm H1219 [H8803] against the fortified H5892 cities H1364 , and against the high H6438 towers.
17 H6887 [H8689] And I will bring distress H120 upon men H1980 [H8804] , that they shall walk H5787 like blind men H2398 [H8804] , because they have sinned H3068 against the LORD H1818 : and their blood H8210 [H8795] shall be poured out H6083 as dust H3894 , and their flesh H1561 as the dung.
18 H3701 Neither their silver H2091 nor their gold H3201 [H8799] shall be able H5337 [H8687] to deliver H3117 them in the day H3068 of the LORD'S H5678 wrath H776 ; but the whole land H398 [H8735] shall be devoured H784 by the fire H7068 of his jealousy H6213 [H8799] : for he shall make H926 [H8737] even a speedy H3617 riddance H3427 [H8802] of all them that dwell H776 in the land.
